Prosecutors say Harycki prepared false tax documents between 2007 and 2010 from accounting companies he owned. All in all, the IRS said Harycki avoided paying more than $2 million in taxes he legally owed.

U.S. Attorneys announced Wednesday Harycki was sentenced to one year and one day in prison for his crimes. He’ll also serve three years of supervised released and have to pay that $2 million in restitution to the government.
